Klock Werks 14 Sport Flare!

Just installed one in dark smoke. The wife and I just rode the RGS to dinner and I can say I am thrilled! Im 62 and with only 100 miles on the new bike I knew I was going to need a better windshield. With the stock shield the air was hitting me in the eyes and ears bad! The buffeting was terrible and the stereo couldnt be heard over about 50 even wide open. I was even considering upgrading the stereo. After this simple change its a totally different bike! No buffering! The air is smooth even at 70! The stock stereo can now be heard clearly! I know this sounds like an advertisement for KW but its not just one satisfied customer!!

I'm trying to find something that will allow me to hear the radio at above 70 mph and also allow me to see easily over the windshield. So far I chosen poor radio sound over staring at the edge of the windshield. Maybe I'll give klockwerks a try.

This was my experience as well. The KW 14 Sport Flare was for sure one of my better mod choices. And yes, anybody looking to upgrade their audio system should start by changing the windshield first.

Love mine. Stereo was ok at 70. Now with the amp and speakers. Life is good.

Glad to hear others have had good luck with them as well! Im all about products that perform as advertised no matter what the brand.

Klock Werks 14 Sport Flare...👍🏾

Got the windshield for my 2019 Road Glide Special... Also had a similar one for my 2008 Road Glide. The first one was good. The current one is WAY better on this particular bike. With the stock windshield I was getting wind right between the eyes (I am 510 tall)... Had to wear a full-face helmet to make riding bearable. With the Sport Flare I can go back to an open-faced helmet with no issues. Secondly, the stereo is MUCH easier to hear. And that is a STOCK stereo at that (but I WILL be changing that out, too). I highly recommend the Sport Flare.

Here's my 14" smoked on 19rgs. I love the shield. I've never ridden the bike without it. Brought it to the dealer when bike was being prepped so I can't comment on the difference between the small stock one. But being over 6'2", I knew the stock shield wasn't going to cut it. Plus I can hear the stereo with a 3/4 helmet on at highway speeds no problem.
